Myrna Palley Fund




The Education Fund is proud to announce the establishment of an fund in memory of longtime board member Myrna Palley. Myrna and her husband of 63 years, Sheldon Palley, 是视觉艺术教育的真正拥护者吗. Last June 2019, The Education Fund was proud to present our first Patron of the Arts Award to Myrna and Sheldon Palley.

当我们看到AG亚游集团官方网站充满活力的艺术项目, 每一个方面都受到了玛娜和谢尔顿·帕利夫妇的影响和慷慨支持. 玛娜经常担任我们每年一次的艺术发现展览的评委, 确保学生的艺术才能得到认可. 她和谢尔顿总是赞助、出席AG亚游集团官方网站 For the Love of Art Charity Auction. Myrna helped develop this annual event to support arts education in our public schools and served as its long-time co-chair. The Palley's home showcases children’s artwork next to pieces from well-known artists from across the world, 传达儿童视觉艺术教育的价值.

More recently, Myrna and Sheldon’s significant philanthropic investments have been the fuel behind our creation of an “arts in education training space” and master-level workshops with recognized artists like Pablo Cano, famous for his found object marionettes. With the Myrna and Sheldon Palley Workshop Pavilion at The Education Fund 海洋银行教材中心, students are now learning new genres, including “the art of found objects,” from their teachers. As a result, 学生参与复杂的艺术项目,培养批判性思维能力, varied dexterity, an artist's eye, and often teamwork, 随着艺术作品变成更大的集体装置.

我们永远感谢玛娜和谢尔顿对我们工作的信任, for their long-term funding, and especially for selflessly supporting thousands of local public school students on their road to becoming artists. 帕利对艺术的热情正在改变AG亚游集团官方网站社区. The Education Fund board and staff are privileged to remember and honor Myrna Palley with the Myrna Palley Fund, 在未来的许多年里,什么将支持我们公立学校的艺术老师和他们的学生.
